The Hazzard Mansion
Hazzard was widely known for his sponsorship of Harry Jones, pilot/operator of the Jones Flying School, located on the site of today's Friendship Motel. During the 1930's, Jones gave rides and taught people to fly in his signature green and yellow airplane with "Hazzard Shoe Company" advertising on the underside of the wings. Harry Jones' Flying School lasted until his hangar was destroyed by the Great Hurricane of September, 1938.The film also features rare footage of American icons Charles and Anne Lindbergh arriving at low tide on Grand Beach in their airplane.
